The website URL for reservations is hereThe host hotel is on the PCOM campus, so attendees staying at the hotel will be able to walk to all sessions, Friday – Sunday. 

All individuals are responsible for their own lodging and for making their own reservations. SNMA does not cover travel and lodging costs.  For reservations at the hotel, please call the Hilton’s toll-free number, 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667) and refer to the code, noted above.

The hotel’s special group rate for single/double accommodations is $139.00, plus local tax of 15 .5% per night.  All guest reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card.  Sharing is encouraged.  When calling, identify yourself as part of the “SNM PCOM Room Block.”  The cut-off date for making reservations at the group rate is September 15, 2017. 

You may still be able to get a room after the cut-off date, but there is no guarantee that the same rate will be offered, so if your travel plans are uncertain, it is better to reserve now.  There is no penalty imposed, if you have to cancel later, but be sure and also check the hotel’s cancellation policy.
